Surf's Down

Patti explains why surfing is a bad date and how a redhead was invited to a mixer.

Full transcript after the jump

So this week I've got two motivational, helpful, spiritual people. One is Steve G. Jones and the other is Gary Cox. Steve is a well-known hypnotherapist, and Gary is a motivational speaker.

Both guys want their soulmate. They're in their forties. Gary wants to get married and have children, while Steve has been married and just really wants his soulmate. He doesn't need to get married again. It's going to be in interesting week. Steve is the guy who dates down. He dates the waitresses and the hairdressers, and he's getting his doctorate so she shouldn't be dating that at all. And Gary although he didn't really talk to Destin and Rachel about being Christian, he's all born-again on me. I don't really do Christian dating. I'm going to see if I can practice this, and we'll see what happens.

Recruiting session was very interesting. A lot of women for Steve, educated, over 40, in shape, really looking for their soulmate, would move to Savannah, Georgia, where he's from if they hit it off. A lot of them travel. A lot of them are on the open road. They get his lifestyle. Really good fit, he had a lot to choose from. Gary not so much about four or five showed up.

Mixer was very interesting. The girl that we thought was the most conservative who showed up turned out to be the most out there. I mean the boob-alicious. Jennier shows up and she basically wears Jessica Simpson’s dresses from two years ago with that tatas out there to china and she's all flirty myrty. And at first Gary's like, "well she’s too over the top for me." And I'm like, "Did you not ask me for Jessica Simpson, born again. That's that girl." So he kind of realized in the end, yeah I'm right, and that was probably the best pick for him. And after several mini-dates he said, “OK this is the one I’m going to go with.” And that was fine I sealed that deal.

But then had so many women to choose from, I was kind of surprised he picked a redhead. Destin's choice, which was a little odd, because I don't usually let redheads come to the mixers. But I gotta go with the client. He chose Sally

On their date, Sally and him went surfing. Not my usual date. Neither one had tried that before. It's kind of cold in the water. They had to wear wetsuits. But in walks in Alex, the fun, 23-year old, hot surf instructor that Sally can't take her eyes off of, and there goes Steve. And she was rude. Very dogmatic. Found out about his five-year daughter being given up 19 years ago and was kind of pissed off about that. Who the f—k is she? She's got red hair. She shouldn’t be talking, let alone getting a date.

Making a Match: Brooklyn Chooses Sizzle vs. Substance

Patti dishes on what it was like working with Thicker Than Water Brooklyn Tankard and getting a New York player to start take matchmaking seriously.

Season 8 of The Millionaire Matchmaker is one of the most dramatic ever. This time around, Patti Stanger is helping plenty of unlikely clients find love, from RHOA’s Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield to rap royalty Romeo Miller.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (Brooklyn on French kissing), the bad (Amit’s beard)—and the hilarious (Patti’s New York accent!).

This week, she talks about setting up Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard and teaching this Long Island divorcee to stop looking for love at the clubs. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Brooklyn Tankard the star of Thicker Than Water is up this week. Brooklyn is pretty funny and exciting, she’s a little bit off though. She’s basically a single mom with a daughter and you know she doesn’t get to meet quality men, she really hasn’t found her equal.

My other client this week is liquor entrepreneur Amit Ram, he’s from Long Island. He’s got this awful f---ing beard on his face. Girls in the clubs like his beard, yeah, yeah in 1959 they do, not in 2015.

For those two we chose to do a Hot Seat Mixer. That means Brooklyn and Amit interview potential dates and if they don’t like someone they can kick them out of the hot seat, but if they like them, they get to stay. So it’s kind of like musical chairs.

Brooklyn goes through a bunch of guys and some of them are really awesome. I personally love Jason, he’s tall, he’s older, he’s been divorced, he has kids, he’s a very solid guy. But Brooklyn’s got her eye on Michael who's a bit younger, really hot, super sexy, has sort of a football player look -- and she can’t take her eyes off of him. Instead of going for the substance she’s going for the sizzle.

Meanwhile, Amit chose a great little petite girl named Daniella, she’s also a gym rat like him, they have a lot in common. He’s taken her on an interesting date, free-running training, you know when run and when you jump and you climb, it’s kind of extreme dating. They’re both pretty bad at it, but they love working out so they have a really great time. Then he takes her to a nice dinner at a classy place, Miceli’s.

I just hope Brooklyn took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville, because she needs a lot of work.

Brooklyn had a really nice date with Michael, they went peddle boating. But Michael didn’t ask much about Brooklyn, and this didn’t really work out for her because she likes to be the center of attention. So I don’t think that she chose well. I think it should’ve been Jason, which is the one I wanted her to go out with all along. I just hope she took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville because she needs a lot of work. I bet she'll be back again next time.
